When Laedron Telpist's sorcery training is interrupted by a knock on the door, what once seemed a proper profession must now be hidden. In a world where priests and mages vie for the limitless power of the elements and a new Grand Vicar has sworn death to all sorcerers, Laedron is tossed into a nightmare which would see his destruction at every turn.From the home shores in western Sorbia, through the Cael'Brilland heartlands, and even across the seas to the great city of Azura, Laedron finds himself embracing old friends, consorting with unlikely allies, and confronting potent enemies. As he struggles to train himself in spellcraft, Laedron must face that he lives in a time when the utterance of a simple spell could be the signature on his death warrant.… (més)

This is the first book of a trilogy named "The Mages of Bloodmyr". It is a very entertaining reading with an easy plot. Laedron is a young sorcerer. His mother is powerful, but he has to learn how to develop his own power through a professor called Ismerelda. The story develops on how the church condemns the sorcerers and how the persecution started. He makes alliance with a group a knights that he is sworn to protect, among which is his best friend Marac. Their brotherhood have a plan to overthrown the church, but it looks like it is a suicide mission and Laedron's group of knights is assigned to this mission. Very well developed characters, very well described world, this is a very well written book that will keep your attention to the end and you will be willing to read the sequel, which I will be doing next.
I recommend this book to the permanent library of any reader who love to be entertained during a weekend with a fantasy theme. It took me around 11 hours to read the whole book.
This book was written by Brian Kittrell and it was published by Late Night Books in October of 2011. ( )

Blurb at goodreads accurate so not going to recap. I enjoyed the read (and although the start of a fantasy series not one of those that plods along endlessly in an effort to be "epic"--you know, the ones where every pothole they journeyed thru and every cottage passed practically has its own chapter). Looking forward to reading the next one. ( )

The Circle of Sorcerers, Book One in the Mages of Bloodmyr series, is a straightforward coming of age tale of a young man who must learn the extent of his magical powers while fighting against evil forces. It’s simplicity of plot is a blessing for readers that want to enjoy a more traditional style of fantasy storytelling. Kittrell doesn’t bog the tale down with red herrings, unnecessarily complicated schemes, and convoluted subplot seeds that don’t get resolved for six or seven books (and by then, do you even remember what the point of the subplot was?). It’s a pleasure to be able to enjoy a fantasy novel and not need to maintain a score card to keep track of things for a change.

The primary issue for me with the novel, however, is disjointed dialogue. There are too many inelegant lapses in the dialogue that make conversations feel like data dumps instead of organic character development. For example, Marac says, “I’m Marac Reven, heir to the fortunes of my father Bordric and his holdings. Ours was the first family to settle this land, and I can’t let my family down.” This line may have worked if spoken to a stranger, but it is actually spoken early in the opening of the book to his best friend and the story’s main character, Laedron. And even then, it may have made sense if the conversation was about some weighty matter of honor, but it’s really just two teenage boys discussing why Marac refuses to marry Laedron’s sister.

If you aren’t a stickler for dialogue like I am, you probably will either gloss over this or not notice it. This is an otherwise solid addition to the fantasy genre. For me, it became difficult to get into some of the characters because the dialogue felt forced and unnatural. I still enjoyed the book and plan on adding other books in the series to my TBR list. But the dialogue did detract from my enjoyment of the story. ( )

My full review: http://coffeecookiesandchilipeppers.blogspot.com/2012/09/mages-of-bloodmyr-by-br...

As with the other books that I have found bad enough to earn a one star review, one of the most annoying thing about this series is that there is a lot of imagination in evidence and many interesting ideas. Mr Kittrell has created a world that has various races and cultures, although he did not explore them all in great detail in the sections that I read. He creates a Theocracy, which is always an interesting idea to play with, opposed to magic and those that wield it: a debate that could have provided lots of tension and character development.

Unfortunately, these ideas were the backdrop to a very generic plot populated with characters that were simply cardboard cutouts spouting melodramatic dialogue and displaying astonishing amounts of stupidity and luck. The plotting itself was truly awful and so full of clichés that at times it was laughable. It pains me to say this, as I am sure that Mr Kittrell worked very hard to write these books. ( )

I received the second book in this series through members giveaway, and the author generously gave me the first book in the series. I liked the culture that the author presented in this series. The differences leading to war between the mages and the heraldans, and how that happened seemed well developed. The main character, Laedron, was well-rounded, but some of the minor characters could have used some more development. Some of the dialogue between the characters felt a little awkward, and the pacing of the book seemd uneven. Some of the action sequences happened much to fast, while other section seemed paced too slow. Overall, though, I did enjoy this world and its people, and I am looking forward to reading the next in the series. ( )
